Will Cutting Back Sunshine Ligustrum Save Plants From Way Too Much Rain This Winter In Mississippi
My plants are two years old. They have lost most of their leaves. Mississippi has had record amount of rain this winter. Drainage does not seem to be the problem - we have just had too much rain. My whole yard is very wet and has been for several months.
